Are you getting the new iPad?

Are you getting the new iPad?
New year, new iPad - this one with unseen display resolution, faster graphics chip, better camera, Siri dictation and the obligatory 4G LTE connectivity. Yet it is the market that will ultimately decide whether it is a worthy upgrade, so we wanted to ask you, dear readers, whether you plan to get the third edition of the world's most popular tablet.

We know some of you are already struggling with the overloaded pre-order page, some will take the "wait and see" approach until the first reviews are out, some consider the iPad 2 good enough for them and waited for the expected $100 price drop, and some don't really care about Apple's tablets, or slates in general.

Tell us in the poll below if you plan to get the new iPad or you have something else planned, and comment your decisions in the discussion thread.

Id wait to see what apple introduces this summer, since they are coming out with the new mountain OSX for macbook's which is supposed to integrate with IOS devices. Who knows maybe by summer there might be news of a smaller Ipad??

You should add a 5th option: "I'm not touching anything which runs iOS. Ever. Android all the way!"

The real question is how much battery will churn at high speed video and gaming streaming and how uncomfortably hot will get?

iVoted "No," and not because iDiSliKe krApple but because the Galaxy Note is better and has better specs' so, I'd rather spend $649.99 plus tax on a Galaxy Note (when it comes to Verizon)!

"iPad," what a diSappoiNtment (AgAiN)!!

You're the first person to say what I've been thinking. With Apples release of the iPad 2 and the redesign of the Galaxy Tab 10.1, I looked at the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 with an expectation of another redesign. Although I'm not sure I'll be needing to upgrade out of my GT 10.1 unless the redesigned GT2 10.1 is high resolution, bigger battery, AND front facing speakers. The front facing speakers are the deal breaker for me.

I'm definitely grabbing one this summer once the original rush is down. I've wanted Retina Display on the iPad since I saw it on the iPhone. Can you imagine how amazing video is going to look on that thing? How easier it will be to read books and websites? This is a fantastic update. They put in everything I wanted into this thing. I'm sold...

I just bought a tablet 6 months ago. I have no need to buy another one to replace my old one. The screen resolution is impressive. I'll most likely wait a few years before buying a device to replace my existing tablet.

Hell naw. I prefer to throw my $500 directly in the trash every 6 months, cuts out the middle man and saves me a trip to the pretentious egg-head hipsters at the genius bar.

when the iPhone 4s came out, almost everyone said it wasn't that good of an upgrade and they but now it's one of the best-selling phone's worldwide. how? it's part of apples marketing scheme that every year they release a new phone/tablet and even though it's not much better than the last version they make the previous version product look of of style and they make everyone think they need the newest product. trust me, I don't like apple but I bet that at least 40% of those people who said no will end up buying one sometime this year.
